Bobby Del Greco

Robert George Del Greco (born April 7, 1933 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) was an Outfielder for the Pittsburgh Pirates (1952 and 1956), St. Louis Cardinals (1956), Chicago Cubs (1957), New York Yankees (1957-58), Philadelphia Phillies (1960-61 and 1965) and Kansas City Athletics (1961-63).

He helped the Yankees win the 1957 American League Pennant. Del Greco was a speedy, defensively sound player. The Yankees acquired him to fill in for Mickey Mantle in the late innings.

Del Greco played his last major-league game for the Phillies in May 1965 and remained in the minor leagues through 1967. Following his retirement from baseball, he went to work as a delivery driver for The Pittsburgh Press. Del Greco threw batting practice for the Pittsburgh Pirates until the early 1990s.

His son, Robert, is an attorney who has been involved in a number of high-profile cases in Pittsburgh.

Del Greco grew up in Pittsburgh's Hill District and was signed by the hometown Pirates. They traded him to the Cardinals on May 17, 1956 in a deal that brought center fielder Bill Virdon to Pittsburgh.

In nine seasons he played in 731 Games and had 1,982 At Bats, 271 Runs, 454 Hits, 95 Doubles, 11 Triples, 42 Home Runs, 169 RBI, 16 Stolen Bases, 271 Walks, .229 Batting Average, .330 On-base percentage, .352 Slugging Percentage, 697 Total Bases and 29 Sacrifice Hits.
